Abstract: Sadie L. White (1901-1999), a long-time resident of Burlington’s Old North End, worked in the Winooski Woolen Mill from her late teens until it closed in 1954. She then increased her political activities and served as State Representative for Burlington District 4 1966-1980, and 1983-1984, and served as City Councilor (Alderman) for District 4 1981-1982. Her papers document her efforts to change the route of the Burlington Beltline highway and to advocate for the needs of the elderly and poor in her neighborhood and in Vermont.
